Tents

A bamboo thatched eco lodge provides shade over a luxurious rajasthani hunting tent with two adjoining rooms built from mud, stones and coconut wood.

Colourful saris drape the elevated palm fringed roofs keeping the lodges cool with natural cross ventilation whilst a private veranda, hand moulded from baked mud and cow dung, has sunset views and lean back chairs for daydreaming, star gazing or moon bathing.

Lined with hand block printed cotton, each tent a different colour corresponding to one of the seven chakras (energy centres) in the human body according to ancient vedic traditions. Comfortable beds with big fluffy pillows, silk cushions and bolsters can be arranged as double, twin or triple with locally made iron furniture and solar lighting throughout.

A spacious dressing room has mud cobble walls, thatched roof and arched windows with a sculpted sofa bed ideal for a third person sharing.

Hand bathe under the stars with fresh well water from clay urns and enjoy the experience of the impressive open air, smell free eco composting toilet which uses mango woodchips and effective micro-organisms to return everything back to nature.

Hot solar showers are just a short walk away from each tent.

Room service daily with fresh flowers, dressing gowns and fresh towels when required.

Suites

With wooden beams, exposed stone walls and clay tiles, the maharaja and maharani suites are part of the main house sharing a large garden verandah and have an earthy, castle feel about them.

Master bedroom has an enormous double bed in saffron rich silk, soft cushioned sofas and sacred art.

Mezzanine has an iron staircase leads up to a lovely meditation room in the eaves with a floor-bed for a third guest.

Bathroom is sculpted, shaped and rounded with a sunken bath for two and plenty of hot water from the sun.

Room service daily with fresh flowers, dressing gowns and fresh towels when required.

Yoga

The meditation mandir is shaped into the earth from mud, clay and cow dung, The yoga space uses fallen coconut trees to support a spectacular bamboo and palm leaf roof, with burning oil lamps and incense drifts through the light airy space. The yoga space overlooks the organic vegetable gardens with spectacular views of sunrise & sunset.

Yoga is by no means compulsory here, participate in some, all or none. Many of the guests are new to yoga whilst many others already have an established practice. Our teachers are sensitive to each individual's experience of yoga drawing intuitively from the many styles of yoga.

    "I stayed for a week and had an amazing time. As a meat lover I really enjoyed the vegetarian food, almost makes me to become a true vegetarian. :-) If you have a chance try to get around with a motorbike under the experienced advice by Phil. New locations, different feeling and lifestyle. Truly remarkable!"

    "No better place than this I just came back from an amazing vacation at Yogamagic. I stayed at this lovely retreat for one week. Since it is low season I was lucky to stay in one of the suites. It is furnished with lots of love and an eye for the detail. It can host up to 3 people on 2 floors with enough space for everyone. A highlight is definitely the bathroom with it kind of organic shape. Everything is super clean and well maintained. I enjoyed the food a lot which is vegetarian with lots of fresh fruits and vegetables made with love and more than you can actually eat. The staff is super friendly and helpful and takes good care of you and your well being. A special thank you I want to give to Ishi (one of the owners) who I was lucky to spend a lot of time with. She had an open ear, lots of good advices and as a special treat I good a homeopathic treatment from her. Thank you Ishi, you made me a new person! The Yoga classes are well done and adjusted for every ability. So no matter of you are a beginner of more advanced you will find your level. If you go there make sure to book at least one massage with Natalie, which will make you feel like on a cloud afterwards. Overall I can highly recommend Yogamagic there is not a single thing to complain about and I hope to come back soon."

    "I traveled off peak so stayed in one of the suites. It was magic. Chai tea delivered to my room every morning before i went to a yoga class at 7:30am. Fresh fruit and museli at a shared table, fantastic conversation with Phil and Ishi. Massages, walk to the local cafes in 10mins or hire a scooter and go a little further afield. I will be going back."

    "Yogamagic is an oasis of light amidst the chaos of this increasingly sickened planet. An exciting and evolving testament to the fact that, in taking LESS, we HAVE MOREAwakening us all to the fact that it is only through the smallest individual commitment decisions in daily life that we change the world."

    "I loved yogamagic. The place is an oasis of tranquility , the staff is lovely and really friendly. The yoga was great. The food was great too. A bonus to have a pool. I was lucky to end up with a good group. We all gelled, and shared our meals, and other things together. Few people left and were replaced but we embraced new people and carried on sharing our communal life at Yogamagic. I just hope the place will remain the same, simple and easy going."
